I think they are not as visible as for X34 on the desktop, it's very acceptable with my PG348Q.

No gamma option and it's really annoying. I experienced the same thing with PG278Q. Acer X34 does have it and it seems Acer often provides gamma option with their monitors.
Colors are more washed out on PG348Q out of the box in comparison with X34 or Dell U3415W I still have at home for now.
Hopefully, it's possible to set up gamma in most games and we can use Reshade/Sweetfx to get a better image quality in games.

Last week, I was almost certain PG348Q would not be different from X34 concerning scanlines, especially when I saw what Asus mentions at the end of the user manual : "side effects" (when panel overclocked)
But seeing some pictures with apparently no scanlines made me a bit more confident. I still don't understand how it's possible that all of the 21/9 Gsync monitors I owned had scanlines to varying degrees (5 X34 and one PG348Q)
More surprising, I see scanlines at 60hz native and even with Gsync OFF, they are less visible but definitely here whereas non existent with X34.
I'll play some games tomorrow and see how it degrades image quality (at different fps ranges)
ps - I posted a short review on the french forum you linked before
